Week 30: Texture

Call me silly, but I was confusing “texture” with “patterns” all week.  By Sunday, I made myself start touching things before snapping.  If I can’t feel it in my fingers, how am I suppose to translate it to be felt by the eyes?  Sadly, this technique did not help me capture anything fantastic.  Instead, like in most situations when I feel stressed, I turned to food.

Here is my texture:

Week 30: Texture

How often do you here someone say they don’t like the texture of something in their mouth?  I hear it a lot.  And I think those people are weird.  You either like something or don’t like something.  But I get that certain foods and cooking methods can make consuming more enjoyable.  Granted, I did not cook my peanut butter muffin but there is texture.

The pockets of air captured in the bread.  The smoothness of the creamy peanut butter.  Making it black and white and bumping up the contrast lets your eyes focus on the food.  No color to distract.  It’s simple.  But I dig it.

For next week, Week 31, our subject will be SMALL.  This can interpreted so many different ways because size is relative.  *wheels are turning*  Don’t forget to go check out the Flickr group to see how everyone else photographed “texture” this week.  And good luck discovering your new subject!

Becki D - With the black and white it looks like the table has a good texture going, too. Neat shot!

Stacy - Well, that settles it. I was thinking an English muffin with peanut butter was going to be part of my dinner. Now it’s definite. Thanks for helping me decide.

Love the shot too!
